Come back to this episodes that you can listen to the behind the scenes bonus show so with that I will introduce my special guest and he is Paul Condo welcome to the show Paul. Thank you for having me sky. Thank you for being a guest on your show. You're welcome. So. Hall writes the Podcast Gumbo Newsletter, but polly left for you to just introduce yourself quickly and tell them a little bit about about you before we get started. I have the podcast Gumbo newsletter, which recommends three podcast episodes. A week comes out every Wednesday I've been doing it. Just over about two years now, and then just at the beginning of this year I have a podcast of the same name, and that also is where I give three podcast episode recommendations and A little different than a newsletter at it focuses on national days of the year keeping it pretty consistent, though so that yes, always God. All right, so I guess we'll just get started talking about last week's show and how it came together. Take it away, Pau. All right my hope today is really that your listeners get a little inside baseball about inside podcasting and this particular episode keeping with the sports theme I'm going to give you a softball. Start us all off <hes>. How do you pick your guests and and why Nigel and airline? That's a great question. It's a couple of different things usually for most episodes. It's a show that I am personally super passionate about if I'm not passionate about the show. That's GONNA. Come through in my interview and the interview just isn't going to be as good, but there have been a couple exceptions where I think that the person behind the show is someone that I'm either fascinated with personally. I would put Jason Cal so I interviewed in season one into that category I do listen to his show, but I really wanted in that interview to get under the hood of who is he because he has <hes> well I think a lot of people would say he's sort of a piece of work. And then also you know there might be someone who I think has a long history podcasting. Who I think my listeners can learn from <hes>. So there's someone this season falls into that category, but for the most part it shows that I'm listening to you. I'm a fan of or that I'm just fascinated like. How did someone make something like this <hes>? And so if there isn't some combination of those things going on, I think the interview is going to be terrible and I've been a fan of ear hustle since the beginning, they were on my hit list as I was planning season one. So i. mean that's a good question. I mean good point. Is You know how easy or hard is it to get interviews with people like Nigel? And early on you know what is the process you have to go through an agent or representative, or can you go straight to them? That is also a good question. In that case, I was in touch with. I don't know if I'm saying his name. Right David Qatrana I mentioned him at the end of the episode last week I was in touch with him, because he was my contact at Pr X., and he was <hes> sort of just keeping me abreast of the news coming out of the Organization for my newsletter, and he would let me know about your stuff, so I got him, and mentioned it before season one, and he was receptive, but they were really busy and I. I hope I have this chronology right, but I think it may have been I think when I first went to him. We didn't know that early on. You know. The public did not know that governor. Governor Jerry. Brown was commuting his sentence. I think that that was going on in the background. I hope I have that right because I remember after I asked him, and he said I'll really try, but they're super busy right now, so it was kind of like a maybe kind of an answer yet, and I remember that we went back and forth a few times, and it just seemed like we were sort of kicking the can down the road, and it wasn't happening and I had to figure out like who am I gonNA, talk to this season and so I finally said you know I think I have to make a decision here like let's try for next season and. I remember then listening to them on fresh air. Terry gross had them on fresh air, and she was the focus of the interview was the commutation of sentence, and how that was you know how that happened? And all of that, but they hadn't come out with season four, which was the first season where he is finally on the outside right from the outside. They had the end of season three. Though where you find out, it's happening and. You get to hear him on the phone with his mom, telling his mom might. I'm coming home and all that, so it was right in that period and I remember thinking <hes> interesting. You know that this has happened since. I started talking to David About having them on the show in retrospect. I'm really grateful that it didn't work out that first season because. Everyone wanted to interview them right around that time I mean Terry. Gross was one of many people who talk to them. Because that was like not that was big news that was at least state level, and you know I. Think there might have even been articles in. You know more national papers with national audiences about what had happened, and so I got to have a brand new type of conversation. Now you've been out. You've recorded an entire season like they were about to launch these and five when we had that conversation, so it was sort of like. What has it been like and it was a? A new angle

"nigel poor" Discussed on Ear Hustle

"I'm really excited about this. Too and to celebrate your hustle and all the other radio topiary shows are producing episodes on a trucking related theme. The long haul and this is ours. You know what night over the road kind of reminds me of us. Everyone knew about prison but they didn't know what life was really like. Oh that's true. And we all see those trucks on the highway. But God knows what daily life entails. Wait a minute get it. I'm sorry but it's a Little Cup your coochie and then it has a little spout in the up through it but if you really bad the pressure would just go all over the place. And so I actually don't even use it. It's for when you have a really low stream you WanNa just take your time is slowly but can you. Can you use it while you're driving or you have to pull over? You'd have to pull over. Yeah there there you just get. Pow's yeah but no. I I never have a problem all right enough of that. Eric told us she's been driving for about three years and she drives. What's called a day cab? So there's no sleeping compartment and she doesn't do long hauls like Paul and that's not because she's on parole in can't cross state lines no. She's not on parole at all. The reason she doesn't do long-haul is because she has cats and bring a lot a lot of it as she doesn't want to leave him alone for too long right. Erika Toda set aside from the fact that it takes her away from her cats. She loves almost everything else about the job. There's the freedom. The fact that driving a truck takes all of her energy and focus. She likes it. There's a Lotta multitasking. Although sometimes she says she sees people doing a questionable types of multi tasking. I saw one guy looking through the pages of a Playboy magazine. Once that was weird I was going to take a picture and when he saw that I was looking at him. I had to pretend like I was like while he was driving. His Dome Light was on and he was traveling right next to me and he was just flipping through pictures of naked girls. And I'm like wow. There is one thing she really does not like about. The job is not the job exactly is some of the other truckers male truckers would. I don't like this very insulting is when other truck drivers. See me coming out of the cab and they asked me. If I'm driving an automatic. Why would it be automatic? Why do you think I can't shift think I I can't float my gears? That's weird and you might have guessed. Eric doesn't look like a stereotypical truckdriver. Look like I realized. I'm becky myself into a corner and you know what I am. Definitely someone who needs to listen to over the road because is actually going to inform me moonwalking. So what I'm going to say is that to my present mind. She doesn't look like a stereotypical truckdriver she superfit. She's pretty and she pays a lot of attention to look Erica. She's a bee's she's not to be fucked with me. Spent twenty years in the Peon and actually back before she got in trouble with the law. She wanted to beat a law. That's right she wanted to be a cop a constable on patrol now while she's out driving it's like she's part of the highway patrol. I'm on the phone to the cops all the time. I see crazy shit. What do you mean? You're the cops all the time? There's crazy stuff going on the freeway all the time like Ali driving and then there's a ladder I call the cops on like I am number two lane Northbound eight eighty. There is a ladder and and I don't know who dropped it and then a few minutes later I'll call back like didn't you just call me. I said Yeah. But there's a mattress on the freeway. Now I didn't know that people called that's that's all day long. What number do you cautious when one or the regular CHP number CHP is the acronym for California Highway Patrol? I didn't know that's how they got if I call nine one one and and it doesn't connect me to see hp than the the operator disconnects me see HP. I've only stopped one time. But that's because there was somebody in the in the fast lane trying to make people stop and they were waving their arms and they were standing in the Fast Lane. They got into an accident in their car was up against the side Wall Medium. Call Nine one one and I rolled the window down and I started screaming at the person. Getting your car getting your car. Now get off the freeway and then the person who is waving heard it was my voice and she was a teenager and she had been drinking and her face was split open and she was trying to get people on the freeway to stop in the Fast Lane. And so I'm looking at this girl bitch. You're about to die. She didn't die because Erica. Was there on the phone with the. Chp Erica told. She sees a lot of scary shit out there while she's driving around and she also had a few close calls borough one day. She was getting off the freeway and her brakes failed. I felt like I just had to do what the hell do. Keep from killing anybody. I was Coming Downhill on Airport Boulevard in Stockton and I lost my breaks all the way to the floor. It was just absolutely nothing. I couldn't change gears because my RPM's for just so high. I my my gear. Shift was locked in. I was just driving right into the intersection and my light turned red and their light turned green and nobody could see that. I was having a problem and the cars started going in the car right in front of me. It was just enough to where I made a left in a whipped around him may like a C- like ch and then and then I jack knifed to stop and I destroyed a trailer because I was carrying doubles and there were tomatoes and and I completely demolished the light signal box. But I couldn't stop. That was Erica. Solano talking to US last season and as I mentioned earlier this preseason episode is part of a radio TOPI white. Welcome to a brand new show over the road which is made in partnership with overdrive magazine Guest Richard. Indeed over. The road explores the daily life and changing culture.

I thought going to prison was regal because that's what happened everyone in my family. <hes> you know what the thing about when when i was younger people not a prison they were. They were like big loofah reno <hes> type. I mean they were real big and you like you. Go go to prison and come out. Come out that i had. I wanted to go to prison but did right right yeah though well. This has been such an interesting conversation to me. I really learned a lot talking to you. Both and i thank you boats with the work. You're doing and thank is just amazing. We have <hes> seven quick questions. We liked today's game totally. Do we start with your lunch okay. What do you wish you really understood. What i really understood. Why would say a so then. This might not be called deep but i wish i understood. How do you get a hundred movies on many s._s._d. Chip that has been vexing me. I knew these get interesting. What do you wish you really understand that has easier. What you said vex me forever. I really wish i could understand the concept of infiniti and that the universe doesn't end. I really wish i could understand that concept space that something doesn't end the the black hole within got something else. It can't that so i wish i could be. I think i think we're the scientists understand that concept. I wish i could understand it okay number two. What do you wish other people understood about you. You go first. I national okay. I wish that just because i'm quiet and polite. I'm not a pushover and you wish the same painting right yeah. I'm gonna go with that. I'm gonna go with because that's gotta. Come on.

"Have you make a life we have had a few stories where people's crimes have come up and we don't shy away from that but we don't want to concentrate on it because we really are trying to do what you said is to create connection connection and figure out how people who on the surface don't appear to have anything in common can actually have a really important conversation. That's going to help all sides. One of the things exist occurred to me listening to it because i have. I guess i have a jaundiced view of what prison has to offer but you seemed indicate. That is a very wide variety. Among prison experiences definitely an airline to just but i always want to come back to that. San quentin is really different and i don't want your hustle to give people the impression that all prisons san quentin because they just aren't but if they go a prisons wanna be like and people in the prisons would like them to be like sanguine taint. Clinton's doesn't sound like a picnic anyway. What struck me the most was the deprivation of the people from there the incarcerated people the the declaration of the community with their families and that sounds to me like a kind of emotional solitary confinement being away it is <hes> <hes> emotional toll being away from the kids being away from everybody like you might you might have pictures of people in out and i see him and they grown up like me and i'm still thinking mm ahead as six-year-old pitcher gone yeah. No i didn't well. I i just made a case a strong case against prison and i fully fully aware that there's the idea that's really the most common idea i think in our culture that if you do the crime you gotta do the time and that it's good for everybody overall because it discourages people from committing crimes. I have a couple of questions. I wanna wanna ask you about that for one is did it ever discourage you from doing a crime the idea that you might get caught and put in prison. No i will say it is. It's just like the death penalty. <hes> people feel that the death penalty may discourage you from doing crime when people are doing crime. You're not thinking about the death penalty. You're not even thinking about none of that stuff. You're not thinking about the consequences of your actions you know because at the end of the day you're not thinking you're going to get caught so interesting. What are the odds. I think are pretty much against you. If you commit a crime or crime after crime i would think so yeah but you don't even as as you say like if you do to time i mean if you gratitude. If you do the time so <hes> in california they had a three strike law where okay you won't just do the time you a gang of enhancements time. You know like <hes> your crime. Crime might be three years but you get like twenty five hundred years to life in an enhancement so it's kinda hard to just do know from experience that at least one person did take it seriously that he that he might be up for life if he committed a third crime. I know this because he said to me. I've been here twice before so i just want you to know if i'm robbing a drugstore and you're standing at the cash register. I'm gonna have to kill you coz. I'm not coming back here. I don't want a witness so he figured out that he might go to jail forever so his solution was to murder me this moving i i said to how about if we work it out right now. I won't talk okay. No they got ways of making you talk. I'm gonna kill you wait. Wait a minute so people would probably talk like that but again nobody he was trying to. He was having fun yeah. Nobody nobody feels. They're going to get caught. Nobody will unless you commit a crime. You're not thinking the last might run through your mind like my geico but the last ask thought is. I'm gonna get caught and i'm going to get away well. If i did i i thought would be. I'm going to get caught. Maybe that's a dividing line line.

"I'm curious and how and can we search our hearts to think about forgiveness and and that people change as time the best is very very interesting because i think most people in prison. Most people come from an environment where ages did what they see whether it's selling drugs whether it's robbery this is something that you grew up into the environment live into you normal growing up you know especially when you start off ed thirteen eighteen twelve and your parents is working jobs at the jobs or dark you know two jobs overtime whatever it is so you basically have oversight of yourself and you and a neighborhood with dudes with like minded dudes you know and y'all get into stuff so well. That's probably good reason to do what you're doing which is to conveyed to those of us who don't experience that environment to realize what it's like and what the pressures are and i think very often we say why would a person do thing like that because we can't imagine everything that led up to exactly exactly. I know i've talked to guys. I can think of one particular when we're interviewing tribune. He was growing up he said to me. I couldn't wait to get to prison. I thought going to prison was regal because that's what happened everyone in my family. <hes> you know what the thing about when when i was younger people not a prison they were. They were like big loofah reno <hes> type. I mean they were real big and you like you. Go go to prison and come out. Come out that i had. I wanted to go to prison but did right right yeah though well. This has been such an interesting conversation to me. I really learned a lot talking to you. Both and i thank you boats with the work. You're doing and thank is just amazing. We have <hes> seven quick questions. We liked today's game totally. Do we start with your lunch okay. What do you wish you really understood.
